Product Description The Scout’s Guide to Wild Edibles is a National Outdoor Book Award (NOBA) winner in the Nature Guidebook category. Ever seen a tasty-looking plant or mushroom in a yard or forest but weren’t sure if it would taste good…or even be edible? In The Scout’s Guide to Wild Edibles, renowned forager Mike Krebill profiles 40 widely-found edible wild plants and mushrooms of North America, in a guide small enough to fit right in a pocket. The author offers clear color photos and positive-ID tips for each plant, along with lip-smacking recipes and engaging projects and activities for all skill levels. The Scout’s Guide will help foragers locate, identify and safely enjoy wild edibles – with the added satisfaction of knowing exactly where their food came from. This is one of those "especially for now" kinds of books for the challenging times we are in. Review "This is a great book to introduce Scouts or anyone else to foraging. It covers some of the most common, widespread edible plants and mushrooms in a clear, concise manner, with photos that are as instructive as the text. I wish I had this one back when I began to learn foraging myself!" ― "Wildman" Steve Brill, author of The Wild Vegan Cookbook "While its title brings to mind young foragers, this book, designed to fit easily among camping gear, is for nature lovers of all experience levels. It also functions as more than simply a guide―the narrative is peppered with the author’s often entertaining anecdotes from his many years as a Boy Scouts participant and leader, a wild foods educator, and a National Wild Foods Association Hall of Fame forager. Veteran foragers will no doubt find some pro tips in these pages, and inexperienced foragers are likely to grow awfully curious about the free food lurking in their yards and along their favorite hiking trails." ― Sierra, the national magazine of the Sierra Club "This delightful, pocket-sized guide helps beginners of all ages to identify 40 wild edibles." ― Learning and Yearning blog "Mike Krebill has had 50 years of experience researching, working with, and teaching about edible wild plants. He has guided thousands of students over the years. His enthusiasm and dedication have given him both the expertise and wisdom to provide valuable content and insight to everyone with whom he shares his knowledge." ― John Kallas, Ph.D., Director, Wild Food Adventures "As a previous Girl Scout professional staff person and Trainer, I know The Scout's Guide will be a fantastic resource for leaders, camp staff and girls. Mike's style, developed as a Middle School science teacher, nature center director and Boy Scout leader is well suited to making the material clear, succinct and interesting for all ages." ― Lynn Pace, former Girl Scout District Executive "Sometimes good guidebooks come in small packages. The Scout’s Guide to Wild Edibles almost fits in a back pocket, and yet, for its relatively small size, it packs in a lot of information. Author Mike Krebill knows his wild edibles, and he knows how to make a guidebook fun for young people. A wild food expert and a Scout leader, he divides the book into two parts: the first is the identification guide profiling 40 widely found edible wild plants and mushrooms. The second half consists of recipes and ways of cooking wild foods. In this last half boys and girls are pictured preparing and cooking plants that they have gathered on their outdoor forays. It’s oriented to the younger set, of course, but adults just might want to sneak one along on the next outing. They’ll find it pretty handy too." ― National Outdoor Book Award Foundation "With precision, humor and enthusiasm, Mike Krebill walks us though his favorite edible plants and mushroom. Mike is a lifelong teacher; his years of experience, both in the classroom and in the field, make this book a joy to read." ― Ellen Zachos, author of Backyard Foraging "With more than five decades of experience teaching wild e
